What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and ambitious teacher who is able to teach English throughout the school at Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and A-Level. The successful candidate will be well-qualified & have a passion for their subject.

English is taught to all students throughout Key Stage 3; students have four lessons each week. At GCSE, all students take both English Language and English Literature at GCSE. Both of these subjects are currently offered at Key Stage 5 and the faculty also offers Media Studies as an A-level subject.

The English faculty comprises 11 full time and 1 part time specialist members of staff. The faculty is housed in a dedicated block with nine classrooms, including its own IT suite, staff base and a library resources centre that has recently been completely refurbished. Through hard work and dedication, the faculty has consistently produced some of the best results in Northamptonshire over the last five years, with typically around 90% of students achieving grade 4 in English at GCSE and 20% achieving a grade 7 or above. In the Sixth Form, English and Media Studies have been popular subject options and several students go on to do English related courses at university each year.

What the school offers its staff

We offer a comprehensive employee benefits package including support of the Teacher Pension Scheme, Cycle to Work Scheme, Discounted Onsite Gym Membership and onsite parking.

Wollaston School is a fantastic place to work and study. Informal visits are welcomed if you would like to see us in action and to learn more about us prior to your application.
